Dear families, 


What a year it has been!  It’s hard to believe that summer is around the corner now that we’re in May. 

Here are this week’s updates: 

  • SOL Testing Dates and Information: Due to the number of virtual only students needing to test, we added another day for testing on Fridays.  You will receive a call from the school about your child’s testing day if they are virtual.  If they are in person, they will test on one of the three days. 

  • 5th Grade Science: Monday, May 10th - virtual only students, May 11th-13th - in person students 

  • 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade Reading: Monday, May 17th and Friday, May 21st  - virtual only students, May 18th-20th - in person students 

  • 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade Math: Monday, May 24th and Friday, May 28th - virtual only students, May 25th-27th - in person students 

  • Food Giveaway Friday, May 7th, 3:00-5:00pm 

  • Rising Kindergarten Camp: Please see the attached flyer for our rising kindergarten camp if your child will be going into kindergarten in the fall - Wild about K.pdf 

  • State updates childhood vaccine requirements: 

  • To align with current Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) 
    recommendations, the 2020 General Assembly passed House Bill 1090 amending minimum vaccination requirements. View VDOE Superintendent's Memo 095-21, House Bill 1090 Childhood Vaccine Requirements Update (PDF) and the following attachments: House Bill 1090 Frequently Asked Questions.pdf 

  • The Parents as Partners conference, hosted by the Prince William County Public Schools Office of Special Education Parent Resource Center, is designed to empower parents, prekindergarten through 12th grade, to advocate for their child and navigate the Section 504 or special education process to ensure successful outcomes.  

  • Join us throughout the month of May for live Zoom information sessions presented by the Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center (PEATC) and the Prince William County Public Schools Office of Special Education. The sessions will address how you can be an advocate for your child, talk with your child about bullying, and contribute to the Section 504 or IEP process. 

  • Visit the Parents as Partners webpage for session descriptions, registration links, and to request accommodations for each session.
